Exodus 15:1-10 New International Version - UK (NIVUK)

The song of Moses and Miriam

15 Then Moses and the Israelites sang this song to the Lord:

‘I will sing to the Lord,
    for he is highly exalted.
Both horse and driver
    he has hurled into the sea.

‘The Lord is my strength and my defence[a];
    he has become my salvation.
He is my God, and I will praise him,
    my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
The Lord is a warrior;
    the Lord is his name.
Pharaoh’s chariots and his army
    he has hurled into the sea.
The best of Pharaoh’s officers
    are drowned in the Red Sea.[b]
The deep waters have covered them;
    they sank to the depths like a stone.
Your right hand, Lord,
    was majestic in power.
Your right hand, Lord,
    shattered the enemy.

‘In the greatness of your majesty
    you threw down those who opposed you.
You unleashed your burning anger;
    it consumed them like stubble.
By the blast of your nostrils
    the waters piled up.
The surging waters stood up like a wall;
    the deep waters congealed in the heart of the sea.
The enemy boasted,
    “I will pursue, I will overtake them.
I will divide the spoils;
    I will gorge myself on them.
I will draw my sword
    and my hand will destroy them.”
10 But you blew with your breath,
    and the sea covered them.
They sank like lead
    in the mighty waters.
